Using the state standards as our guide, we use a variety of resources to teach your child. We also use a variety of strategies. Your child will read and write EVERYDAY. Along with mini-lessons that provide whole group instruction, your child will be placed in a Guided Reading Group. This gives your child the opportunity to read and discuss text with the teacher and with a small gathering of other students. As your child's needs change and grow, so do the reading groups!
While reading and discussing various selections that are examples of narrative, informative, and persuasive writing, the students will also write their own persuasive, narrative, and informative pieces.
Students should come to class everyday prepared to read and respond to what they have read.
